Troubleshooting & Next Steps

Connection Issues?

Having trouble connecting via USB to your computer?

  • Click here for the connection troubleshooting guide.
  • Click here for information on printing untethered with the microSD card that was included with your Printrbot.
  • Windows Users: Windows 8.1 has recently dropped signed drivers to recognize your Printrbot.  For other versions of Windows, download the required USB driver from http://pjrc.com/teensy/serial_install.exe, right click on it and “Run as Administrator” to install the INF file. It should create a new COM port that you can then use in Repetier to connect.  Click here for a helpful user created guide.  Windows 8 users – if you are still having trouble, see this guide.
